Hey Lamba Lamba
Singers: Devan Ekambaram, Divya Vijay, Krishna Iyer
Lyrics: Kavingar Vaali

A feel good track with heavy influence of reggae opens the album with good vocal rendition by Devan Ekambaram. The guitar hook gives the right ambience throughout the track. The lyrics are peculiar with a storytelling kind of presentation. The rhythm is groovy and orchestration is done competently.

Aathangara Orathil
Singers: Gana Bala, MC Vickey
Lyrics: Kabilan

Gaana Bala delivers his best yet again with his raw yet melodious vocals in this kuthu-rap mashup. The track doesn’t sound like a typical Harris Jayaraj number but it starts growing on the listener as it progresses. The interludes are essentially electronica but the rap section is passable at best.

Latcham Calorie
Singers: Arjun Menon, Chinmayi
Lyrics: Pa Vijay

The heavy usage of electronica and techno sounds work well with mellowed voices of Arjun and Chinmayi. The guitar touches are funky and usage of Sitar in between marks a good fusion move. The typical usage of chorus in Harris Jayaraj compositions is clearly evident in this track.

Nenje Nenje
Singers: Chinmayi, Pravin Saivi, Unnikrishnan
Lyrics: Kabilan

A sweet sounding ballad in Unnikrishnan’s flawless voice in the midst of lilting guitar and mellowed rhythm. The track is well composed creating a soothing ambience for the listener.  Chinmayi marks her own presence as the track progresses by.The acoustic guitar flourishes are an asset to the tune.

Nee Vandhu Ponadhu
Singers: Bombay Jayashri, KK, Megha, Ramya NSK
Lyrics: Thamarai

A trance based track having an irresistible carnatic touch brings the soundtrack to a close. KK is at his confident best in this challenging track and Bombay Jayashri fits well in the midst of western orchestration. Ramya NSK joins in with the Arabic chants with equal competence. The interludes are done with fresh approach towards trance orchestration.

Verdict: Harris teases some new ideas within his popular template.
